Celebrating the holidays at a Disney park is always incredible, no matter which coast you’re on. On select nights, Disney throws in a little extra magic. This year at Walt Disney World it will be Disney Very Merriest After Hours. At Disneyland, Disney Merriest Nites will take place at Disneyland Park. There are only five events, and tickets will most likely sell out on September 14, which is the date that they go on sale. Here are the details from Disney Parks Blog.
Celebrate the Holiday Season in a Merry, New Way with Disney Merriest Nites, an All-New After-Hours Event at Disneyland Park
by Michael Ramirez, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort
Are you looking forward to immersing yourself in the holiday season this year? Look no further because magic is here with Holidays at the Disneyland Resort! And this year we’ve added a new separate ticket, limited-capacity offering, Disney Merriest Nites. Since Mickey Mouse adores the holidays and celebrating with friends, he’s invited some of them to help host six themed parties in one throughout Disneyland park. You can join Mickey Mouse and his friends on one of five select nights during November and December with the purchase of a ticket!
As the host of the party, Mickey Mouse will welcome you to the party on Main Street, U.S.A. with Victorian flair, and Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and their friends join in the fun, traveling in a special coach with Christmas carol sing-alongs, Muppet antics, and a few chickens! Over in New Orleans Square, Princess Tiana plans to ring in Noel with guests at her bayou-inspired celebration. In Frontierland, Miguel from the Disney and Pixar film “Coco” will be wishing everyone Feliz Navidad while you kick up your heels during a jolly dance-filled fiesta. Three more character-hosted holiday parties await you with a tropical party hosted by Lilo & Stitch in Adventureland, a wintertime celebration with Elsa in Fantasyland, and Buzz Lightyear taking the holidays to new heights over in Tomorrowland. Your friends and family will enjoy enhanced entertainment such as themed photo backdrops and character sightings, and themed specialty food and beverage offerings within the event.
Attendance at this separately ticketed holiday event offers you limited-capacity, after-hours access to Disneyland park attractions* and entertainment. Select attractions will be available, including the seasonal transformations “it’s a small world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday, along with a special viewing of “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade.**
With unlimited Disney Photopass*** digital downloads from the night, you may want to wear your favorite holiday attire!
Disney Merriest Nites tickets will be sold for events on Nov. 11, Nov. 16, Nov. 30, Dec. 7, and Dec. 9. Tickets will be available for purchase beginning Sept. 14, 2021, no earlier than 9 a.m., on Disneyland.com and the Disneyland app. For event highlights and additional details, please visit disneyland.com/merriestnites.
We look forward to celebrating the Holidays and Disney Merriest Nites with you soon at the Disneyland Resort!
